The uninhabited island of Eynhallow with its twelfth century monastic settlement can be reached from Rousay by boat. It’s an island of beauty, mystique and legend with spectacular tidal roosts on either side. On Wyre, according to the Orkneyinga Saga, Kolbein Hruga, the giant Cubbie Roo of legend, built the castle here about 1150 and it is the oldest dated square keep castle in Scotland. Close by the castle is the beautifully preserved St. Mary’s Chapel which was founded either by Kolbein or his son Bjarni, Bishop of Orkney at the time.
